Tour Lithographs and show specific artwork

Recommended Posts

Here is Nashville. First major misfire in terms of artwork imo. Even KC was at least creative.

It's made by hatch show print, which is an old and famous print shop in Nashville. It's a letterpress which is a process that has its limitations but it's a very hands on technique using inks and wooden blocks to print. They have their unique appeal and  following of collectors so getting a gnr hatch print yesterday was just icing on the cake. Google hatch show print, tons of history and lookup gig posters by them also.

The design isn't that remarkable, imo, but much cooler now that i know the story behind them.  Glad I found a booth that had some.  Wish the quality was better but probably goes with the method of making them.

That's pretty damn cool

Might be embarrassing myself here, but what is the Nashville poster referencing?

You're not embarrassing yourself, I've been racking my brain. Does anyone have a clue what this poster is all about?

I was able to get the Nashville one by heading over to the stadium around 4:15 on Saturday.  Ended up getting slightly damaged during the course of the rest of the day, which is disappointing, but a cool piece of memorabilia from the show. Mine is #174

The Pittsburgh litho(?) is huge, looks like a poster really, am I wrong?

Also, the print translates much better on the poster than the t-shirt if you look closely..

Love the Pittsburgh lithograph.  I hope the Toronto one looks that good.

Simple and bold is always the best.  Nashville's was awful and KC maybe worse.

If the Toronto one is good it will hang along with my Tool and Soundgarden tour posters.

Pittsburghs is quite good. Having the plain logo is boring, but they still made it neat imo

The Pittsburgh one looks fantastic. Hopefully the Philly one is as good. If I can get a shot of one I'll post it -

I thought the Pittsburgh litho is neat in how they referenced the Steel town into it with the molten steel.  I was honestly expecting something with Heinz

So what's it gonna be in Philly? I'm figuring founding fathers/ liberty type thing. Skully Ben Franklin wearing Slash style shades & a smoke hanging out of his mouth?

This design is the best so far in my opinion. Would have loved to buy this shirt! :) 

I agree,the art for the 2nd show on July 3rd is superior for me.i like it the best cuz the font and art reminds of the same vibe I get from the comic book style art featured in the Creepshow 1 & 2 classic 80s horror films.Love it! I was at 1st Chicago show.i couldn't get either version,shit sold out

Hey, just throwing this out there... Any one interested in trading a Vegas VIP litho for one of the Cincinati astronaut ones? I have two of the Vegas VIP litho's but the Cincy one is my favorite that I've seen.
